About the Contest.

The first round consists of written tests administered at eight sites conveniently located throughout the state. Three exams are available: Geometry, Algebra II with Trigonometry and Comprehensive. Previous Exams can be found here. Awards are given based on individual performance and based on team performance, where a team is formed by the top four scores on each exam. Please see the Contest Rules here for more information, including eligibility to take an exam.

The second round is a "ciphering" (Jeopardy style) tournament held at the University of North Alabama. This tournament is by invitation only based on the results of the first round team comprehensive scores. The ciphering tournament consists of four rounds of 10 questions each, completed by a team of four students. Each student is sent up to answer two individual questions in a predetermined category (Geometry, Algebra II with Trig, Comprehensive I and Comprehensive II) and then the final two questions are worked on by the entire team. For more information, see the Ciphering Rules. Sample Ciphering Presentations can be found here.
